I hope these ideas help make the most of these days at home! It’s so sad that so many people are ill and suffering during this time. Try look at this opportunity to be “stuck at home” as a gift. I’m sure that there are days when your kids or spouse are driving you insane, whatever it may be, but you hopefully will never experience a time like this again in your life. Let’s make the most of it and be grateful for all that we do have, yeah?

Let me know if you have any other ideas for things to do while practicing social distancing! I’d love to hear them!

with joy
